If conditions are not conducive for Basket Swamp (e.g. river too low) a basecamp in Sundown National Park at Broadwater Camping area is proposed as the backup plan from Friday 10th to Monday 13th .  As sites are limited here I have aleady booked site 13 which I can cancel closer to the time if Basket Swamp proceeds.

  Sun 26 Apr DW S T5 F5 - Short day walk to Piper Comanche, Brisbane Forest Parak aka D'Aguilar NP. This is an old favourite that involves walking along a forestry road to The Log, hanging a right and heading along a ridge until we (hopefully) get to the spot to head down to the wreck of a Piper Comanche plane.  As it has become rather popular, there shoud be no scrungy growth to fight through like there has been in the past, but nothing is guaranteed.  The start of the walks is about 1.5 hrs drive from Cleveland.  Contact Tracy 0417 665 382.
